As we age, our chances of de­vel­op­ing dis­eases like Alzheimer’s in­crease – but the good news is that our diet can play a big part in pro­tect­ing our health. Beloved cook and au­thor Mag­gie Beer says the best time to start look­ing ahead to our fu­ture health is now. With in­spi­ra­tion taken from the Mediter­ranean and Ok­i­nawan di­ets, Mag­gie’s Recipe for Life fea­tures recipes with a wide va­ri­ety of brain­pro­tect­ing foods like vi­ta­min-rich veg­eta­bles, fer­mented foods, oily fish, good fats, and nuts and seeds. A be­liever in bal­ance, Mag­gie in­cludes all food groups in her dishes, in­clud­ing healthy al­ter­na­tives for sweet treats and white flour – as well as life­style tips to help care for your body and mind as you age. De­vel­oped with lead­ing Alzheimer’s re­searcher Pro­fes­sor Ralph Martins, Mag­gie’s Recipe for Life is full of de­li­cious ev­ery­day recipes for all sea­sons de­signed to keep you healthy and liv­ing longer.
